Tel Aviv City Hall lights up with MDA symbol to honour emergency workers

Red star of David appears on building in the heart of the Israeli city, as the country continues to battle the impact of the virus

The symbol of Israel’s emergency service Magen David Adom appeared on Tel Aviv’s City Hall building this week, to honour those on the front line against coronavirus.

Israel’s normally bustling coastal city has ground to a halt, with public transport closed and its famous Carmel Market shuttered, as the country battles the spread of Covid-19.

However, Tel Aviv’s local authority wanted to show its appreciation to medical workers battling the disease.

Lighting up the municipality building on Monday night, in front of an empty Rabin Square, it said the gesture was “a token of gratitude and appreciation for the workers and volunteers” of MDA “who work day and night to save lives and combat the spread of the coronavirus.”

So far, the illness has killed 18 people in the country, with almost 500 new cases announced in the past 24 hours. The Israeli Health Ministry reported at least 4,831 cases overall, including  83 in serious condition, of whom 69 were attached to ventilators, according to Times of Israel.
